For more than 50 years, the members of the Institute of Mathematics have published about 3.400 articles, mostly in international journals, many of them in first rank journals such as Invent. Math., Duke Math. J., Adv. Math., Crell J., PNAS, JEMS, Am. J. Math., Math. Ann., Compos. Math., Math. Program., Numer. Math., IEEE Trans., SIAM Journals, Trans. AMS. More than 40 monographs and lecture notes has been published, 15 of them were published by Springer, Kluwer Academic, World Scientific. The institute is responsible for the publication of Acta Mathematica Vietnamica and its members play a crucial role in publishing Vietnam Journal of Mathematics, two of the first scientific and technological journals in Vietnam since 1976 and 1973 respectively. Several members of the institute are members of editorial boards of international prestige mathematical journals in the SCI-E list of WoS.
Since its foundation, about 180 PhD dissertations have been defended successfully and more than 600 master degrees have been issued at the institute. More than 150 master students have obtained grants to study abroad as part of the International Master Program. Members of the institute take part and hold pivotal roles in many organizations as well as activities of the Vietnamese Mathematical Society, Southeast Asian Mathematical Society and commissions of the International Mathematical Union.
Members of the institute were honored prestigious prizes: three Ho Chi Minh Prizes in Science and Technology (Vietnamese Government), a Ta Quang Buu prize (Ministry of Science and Technology of Vietnam), a Ramanujan Prize (Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics - ICTP), a Carathéodory Prize (International Society of Global Optimization), a von Kaven-Ehren Award (German Research Foundation)…
The Institute of Mathematics has been hornored by the Vietnamese Government with a First Class Labor Order (1991), a Third Class Independence Order (2000) and a Second Class Independence Order (2010). In 1994, the institute was recognized by The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (TWAS) as a Centre of Excellence in the South.
|In 2018, The International Center for Research and Postgraduate Training in Mathematics under the auspices of the UNESCO was established under an agreement between the Vietnamese Government and the UNESCO. In the same year, the Simons Foundation agreed to provide funds to support scientific activities of the institute for three years.|
